Sweden has marked the United Nations International Day for the Abolition of Slavery with a black candle vigil at Kungsträdgåden in central Stockholm.

Speaking at Sunday’s march was Swedish integration minister, Nyamko Sabuni. She talked about the importance for Swedes to take responsibility for their role in the slave trade as one of the key exporters of iron used to make shackles to keep slaves captive.

It was 160 years ago that the Swedish parliament outlawed slavery, closing a major trading station at a Swedish colony in the West Indies.
